Staying at a deluxe Disney resort is an experience in and of itself. These resorts are well themed without feeling childish, and the amenities are the best of the best. These hotels are where you want to be if you’re looking to live in the lap of luxury during your Disney trip.
Animal Kingdom Lodge
Many people with disagree with this decision based on location alone. However, aside from its rather remote location, Animal Kingdom Lodge is hands down the best of the Deluxe Resort offerings.
Why do we think this? Well, we have a few different reasons.
The first is the incredible detailed theming that is found throughout the resort. A person could closely examine these details all day long and still miss some of the elaborate details. It’s crazy!
The food is another big factor in our decision. With such exotic favorites as Sanaa, Jiko, and Boma you’ll never tire of your options. Honestly, even the quick-service location is pretty noteworthy!
Finally, we must mention the most impressive fact: Animal Kingdom Lodge is situated in such a way that guests can look out the window at an African savanna complete with giraffes and other amazing animals. This has got to be the coolest feature that any Disney Resort Hotel offers.
Beach Club Resort
Last but definitely not least, Beach Club most certainly deserves a place on this list. This incredible resort could not be more relaxing. The place has a very sophisticated feel about it while still being perfectly family-friendly, and we love that about it.
The pool is easily the best on property and features a lazy river, as well as a sandy bottom and an awesome slide. The cute shipwreck pool is perfect for young children, and the 3 whirlpool hot tubs keep the adults in your party happy.
The dining options at Beach Club resort are pretty great too. Have a character dining experience at Cape May Cafe or try an enormous Kitchen Sink Sundae at Beaches and Cream. Looking for something a bit more formal? Try the wonderful Yachtsman Steakhouse.
Of course, the location of Beach Club Resort doesn’t hurt anything wither. This hotel is situated very close to Epcot, meaning you can walk to the park if you desire. It’s also pretty close to Hollywood Studios.
